Greek transcription question

I'm working on an epub of the "new" Shelley poem that surfaced a few years ago and has now been made available to the public by the Bodleian Library.

At the end of the preface there are two Greek words (see attached image).

The third letter of the second word is transcribed as a ζ (zeta) in the official transcription, but I think it is clearly a ρ (rho). What do you think?

Looks like this (http://junicode.sourceforge.net/greek.html):



Yes, it's a rho.

Yep, thought so. Also searched for the quote, and though it can't be found directly (Shelley probably having come up with his own translation), ειρονἒια turns up and makes sense in the context.

I love the ligatures in the picture you posted!

Yeap, is "ρ" [rho].
"Eιρονείαν". "Ειρωνεία" in modern Greek, "irony" in English.
